Default Re: World record distance WF 5wt?

Jim,

I agree, I think it was a mistake to get rid of the distance casting event at the ISE. I know there has not been the interest with the accuracy only events. They are starting to move towards a hybrid of at least including a distance cast, but that was inly in the finals at the ISE show. I think the issue is that once Steve Rajeff started to show up and win that the figured they cluld give more people a chance by doing an accuracy competition. In Golf nobody wants to watch a chipping or nine iron contest. I think it is the same with casting. To qoute Jon Glavine and Greg Maddux: "Chicks dig the long ball."

The Wasatch fly fishing and fly tying expo has been building a pretty good casting contest that is getting better every year.
